Our innovative Monitoring of the Andean Amazon Project (MAAP) initiative has emerged as a global leader in real-time deforestation and fire monitoring across the Amazon. In 2015, we launched MAAP in Peru with support from Norad and other donors. By 2017, we had expanded MAAP to Ecuador and Colombia, working with local partners to share our peer-reviewed methodology published in Science. By 2019, we incorporated our sister organization Amazon Conservation-Bolivia into MAAP monitoring to address forest fires and also began monitoring in Brazil that same year–just in time to cover the intense fire season that made global headlines.
Amazon Conservation seeks an advanced GIS & Remote Sensing Specialist to support our MAAP satellite-based real-time monitoring program. This position will be based in our Washington, DC office under the supervision of the Senior Research Specialist and in close collaboration with the other GIS & Remote Sensing Specialist, and will coordinate with colleagues in Peru, Bolivia, and other organizations throughout the Amazon as part of our Alliance-wide team.
